Rock Balance

Rock Balance

I was walking along the shores of Lake Winnipeg up around Matheson Island. The water had receded so I could walk along the area that is normally under the lake. It is interesting how the water has picked up and perfectly placed the rock on the middle of some crack lines going off into many directions and angles. You can even see the shadow of the rock from the setting sun in the west.

I like the way your eye is taking in off to many directions yet creating the effect of coming back to the center of the image where the rock is king while appreciating the balance of the composition.

Dodgy Ice

This is a photograph of the dock at Washow Bay which is north of Riverton on the way to Beaver Creek Provincial Park. It is a favourite spot for fishing by locals. 

This was taken in the spring time as the ice was starting to melt and as you can see it is a bit dodgy to be on. There is absolutely no way you could safely take your snowmobile for ice fishing on Lake Winnipeg as you can do most of the winter time when freeze up happens. 

Soon the ice will refreeze and sports fishermen and fisherwomen can go back to their glory. 

I have taken the liberty to put some special effects to the picture which highlights the different depths of the ice as it disappears

Still Growing

Still Growing

This is a close-up photograph I took of a root growing by the water’s edge. The amazing thing about it is that it is either surrounded by rocks or water and somehow it has reached into the ground and continues to grow. It is determined and ambitious. It chooses to live. I like growth and determination.

Sand Ridges

Sand Ridges

Right at the edge of the water is evidence of the sand building up over time with ridges. You can see the layers building up. In the foreground, is the rippling water and then the sand is in beautiful folds and layers. The lake is teaming with life as it moves and sways to the current flows and the winds. I love the textures and contrast of the photograph. I also see a heart and some other beautiful shapes in the sand. 

This photograph was taken at Matheson Island, north of Gimli, Manitoba.

Peyto Lake

Peyto Lake

I took this image of Peyto Lake after hiking up the trail to the top view and to appreciate this incredibly beautiful azure colour of the water. I like the way there is snow up in the mountains and the sky is so dramatic looking. 

The hike is 3.8 miles round trip but it is totally worth it. The lake is found 40 kilometers or 25 miles north of Lake Louise on the Icefields Highway. Currently, Peyto Lake is closed to visitors until November 2020. It has been open to visitors since 1941 but right now, it is undergoing renovations by the Canadian government in the amount of 2.9 million dollars. 

According to Wikipedia, “Peyto Lake is a glacier-fed lake in Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies…It was named for Bill Peyto, an early trail guide and trapper in the Banff area.”

Cute Dolphin

Cute Dolphin

I was thinking of how much I like to travel to new places around the world. It doesn’t look like we will be able to do so this year due to the corona virus pandemic. 

This is a photograph I took of a cute Bottlenose dolphin in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. It is adorable. She looks like she is smiling and enjoying life. 

According to Wikipedia, “Bottlenose dolphins, the genus Tursiops, are the most common members of the family Delphinidae, the family of oceanic dolphin. Molecular studies show the genus contains three species: the common bottlenose dolphin, the Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin, and the Burrunan dolphin.”

Canada Goose Fountain

Canada Goose Fountain

I like the Canada Geese playing and frolicking in front of the fountain. I have made it black and white to make it more interesting. This picture was taken only a few weeks ago but the fountain has been already closed down due to dropping temperatures and because of the recent snow already. 

There were still Canada geese at the Duck Pond in Assiniboine Park yesterday when I went for my walk. I do not know why the few stragglers have not flown south for the winter. They should be going soon.

Time for Rain

I took this photograph on the western shores of Lake Winnipeg. In it, you can see a dramatic sky and the coming rain. The water is currently calm but in the near distance are the rain clouds coming forth. I feel as if the sky was painted by God’s brush as it has texture and flow.

Beaver Dam

Beaver Dam

The basis of this is a photograph I took at Elk Island National Park near Edmonton, Alberta. They have a number of hikes and walkways. This is the walkway going through the swamp area. There was this finely built architectural featured called a beaver dam on the left-hand side of the swamp. 

I once saw and was in a replica beaver dam at the Manitoba Children’s Museum in Winnipeg, Manitoba. It was absolutely fascinating how the beavers build their homes.

In the Distance

In the Distance

This is a photograph where it leads your eye along the concrete wall, across the waters to the bridge in the distance. This image was taking at sunset in Tempeh, Arizona, USA. 

I have called it “In the Distance” as it leads your attention into the distance.
